Days in March…..

This has been a pretty wonderful month. The pieces are fitting together and are leaving me with a warm heart, daily.  I look forward to a bright Spring!

Original Paintings and the Like – finally finished!

“Gardens Grow” – Original Painting

I love this painting, although painting flowers is still a weakness of mine. Growing up, my mom didn’t have pets, she had plants and flowers. And it was beautiful. I was literally surrounded by them and I loved it.

“Peeping” –  Original Painting

This painting took me longer to finish than I’d like to admit. I just couldn’t seem to get it exactly right, and still there are things I’d like to fix. But I love it. This one was a huge learning experience for me.

“Dream Angel” – Original Painting

This painting is based off of a sketch I drew of the same image years ago.  Some people haven’t liked it because they think she looks weak, but I actually painted her to reflect peace. Maybe it’s just a reflection.

Here’s to another happy month, may they never end! Cheers!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you like what you see!

Finally finished……

"Girl In Hoodie" ... I started this painting many months ago and finally reached the degree of satisfaction I needed to call it complete.

"Blue Bunny Shrooms" painting - at the start ... I painted this with the same approach I use when creating collage work. The idea of taking images that may or may not necessarily make sense together but form a cohesive finish.

When I was younger, one of my siblings (I won't name any names), carried a blue rabbit with them everywhere they went. Everywhere. It was their security blanket. And now being much older, I hold onto the memories of the things we attached ourselves to almost as a security of my own.

"Blue Bunny Shrooms" painting - finished at last ... This painting took longer than I had planned. Mainly due to lack of time. Some people have liked it, others don't see a point to it. Those opinions are all fine with me. I like it. It's the first in a planned series that I hope I can accomplish in a shorter time frame. Keep a lookout for them and thanks for stopping by!

Mail Me Art and Poe…

Art on mail. Submission for Mail Me Art Two. On exhibit at The Red Gate Gallery.

"Poe Girls Penmanship" I listened to a lot of Poe when I was seventeen and I loved my Sharpie pens. I'll keep this one forever.

What I’m working on at the moment…

this painting is the first of a series I'm planning featuring the blue bunny.

"Stars Bright" I started this painting after seeing Hayao Miyazaki's "Ponyo." Still working on it.

Almost finished with this one...I love wearing scarves and hoodies in the fall.

This painting has been a challenge for me but I think she's beautiful! This photo only displays half of the painting due to final adjustments.
